Lambeth council’s planning application committee has deferred the decision on Mamma Mia’s abysmal visitor management plan.
The committee finally recognised the issues which local residents have been screaming about ever since this idea was hatched.
There are concerns around anti-social behaviour in an area of social housing and the regulation of movement of coaches and taxis in the already overly congested Stamford Street and surrounding roads.
The decision to defer is to the credit of many groups, especially those local residents that spoke at the meeting, Samantha Young, Barry Hetherington and Hannah Quigley.
The campaign has been led by local activists and campaigners, and residents from Waterloo’s Resident Alliance, Thames Central Open Spaces, Waterloo Action Centre and Waterloo Community Development Group, as well as our local Lib Dem candidates for Bishop’s ward for the upcoming local elections, Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett (wearing the yellow scarf), Audrey Eager and Charley Hasted.

A full slate of 63 Liberal Democrats are standing to represent you on Lambeth Council in next month’s local elections.
London goes to the polls on May 3, with everybody in Lambeth voting for three candidates to represent their ward.

And wherever you live in the borough, you can cast all three votes for the Lib Dems, as we put forward three candidates in every ward.
Liberal Democrat supporters, those who want to send a clear message on Brexit to the national parties and those who have had enough of Labour Lambeth wasting their money, shutting down libraries and allowing rampant development unaffordable to the vast majority of those that consider Lambeth their home can make their voices heard on May 3 with three votes for local Lib Dem candidates.
